Dermalogica wars: which facial scrub exfoliator is best for your youthful glow?

Exfoliation should be a key part of any regular skincare routine. Especially as you age! This is because exfoliation gets rid of dead cells and grime that sit on top of your skin, encouraging your cells to renew. As you age your cell renewal naturally slows. Exfoliating regularly can help to stimulate cell production.
